2016-2017 Title I Parent/Guardian Involvement Policy

     DeKalb Alternative School

DeKalb Alternative School (DAS) will offer meetings and programs at flexible times to meet the needs of parents/guardians. These programs are planned and based upon parent verbal and written input and feedback. DAS continues to value the support of parents and seeks parental input in the planning and development of new and existing programs. To maximize the success of our students and solicit the involvement of our parents, the following programs are collaboratively planned for the 2016-2017 school year:


Title I Orientation will be conducted on August 3, 2016 and Entry Conferences will be held August 2, 2016- May 11, 2017, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 1:00 pm. At these meetings, the parents will receive and orientation to the Title I School-wide program. The parents will also be informed of their school’s participation under Title I Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. The ESSA reauthorizes the 50-year old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. In addition, parents will be informed and receive the School-Parent- Teacher Compact including the parent’s responsibility for supporting their child’s learning. Parents will be encouraged to take advantage of the various resources available at the Parent Resource Center near their respective home school. Crucial to the success of these meetings is the timely explanation and description of the school’s curriculum, mission statement, school and classroom expectations, and required assessments. In addition, parents will be provided with the academic assessments that will be utilized and the proficiency levels the students are expected to meet. A parent involvement workshop survey will be given to the parents to complete and return to their child’s teacher. Parents will receive a copy of the DeKalb Title I Parent Involvement Policy. 


Title I Staff Orientation: Staff orientation addressing the value and utility of the contributions of parents and how to reach out to communicate with parents as collaborative partners will be presented on September 19, 2013. This presentation will consist of sharing the benefits from the suggestions and support that parents offer and from the satisfaction of seeing children succeed. Furthermore, teachers will receive insights as to how the Title I Program works at DAS and the utilization of funds to support the overall school’s goals. The proposed SWP is discussed and goals are reviewed so that the staff is familiar with their part in helping the school attain the goals.
